The classic All American Girl band, the Go – Go’s, reformed and released this old hit, a cover of the The Capitols 60’s classic, polished up for 1990. It was to promote a compilation hit called “Greatest”, the usual record company trick. Sparse production with sampled bass and programmed drums, the Synclavier had had a busy day under the studio wizardy of David Z and Chep Nunez. Sounding very much like the B-52’s Bizzarely there is a rather good reggae dub mix ,remixed by Justin Strauss and Daniel Abraham, that works better than the 7″ mix, a couple killer dubs here as well.
